Just curious as to how things were going on Tom's Mk3 Turbo kit project. Last I knew, he wanted a car to work on by March. Has anyone donated theirs yet? I'd let him take mine, but I don't have a second car to drive while mine's under the knife for an unknown amount of time...
Anyone have any updates on that? Or should I let that several year old dream die?

ooo, did not know this was happening :)

I think you may have mentioned in other threads about doing Manual first, then attempting DCT?

Sweeeeeet
Have you figured out a safe power goal or anything? Or are you waiting to see how the engine does once the hardware is actually installed?
Do you have parts already picked out like the turbo, exhaust manifold, downpipe, intercooler/intake piping?
I just want to know all of the things. I'm jumping up and down in my chair waiting for this.
Thanks

After you develop it, will you make a gb/pre-order? Will it include bottom end pieces? Or how strong have you found our bottom end to be?

I have not tuned one on a MK3 yet to tell how the engine will hold up , I barrowed a hit hard in the rear 5sp MK3 to get the kit made and it looks stock ,now waiting on SCT

How much do you think you would sell it for?

Random question Tom, what spark plugs will you run with that turbo setup? Have you found a better plug for the mk3?

Not yet but I do know there working on some of it

Tom
What is it you need from them? I ask, because in another thread you mentioned you could do whatever was needed for a tune already? (curious btw... I am in no way seeking to 'out' you or anything!)
